oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster,
my soul is the trapeze artist, and the world is my audience. It sounds
strange because it is, and it is, because I am strange."

northern Ohio to the "wastelands" of Mississippi, where she lives in a
medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a
chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland.
So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus
to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow
